ok guys...i have my FTP server in place...but one thing is nagging me and i couldn't find a solution of that is...how do we give an user access to multiple folders, over different drives/disks???the users can see only the "home" folder/directory and access the stuff inside that...what should i do if i want to let them access to the stuff outside of it as well???i hope i'm clear in asking...do let me know if u don't understand what exactly do i need...all the opnions are most welcome...TIA :)

hmm...well, let me put it this way...i want so share my music...in one drive...fine, i make one user and give it access...i want to share my movies...in another drive...again, i make one user and give it access...i want to share "those" movies...in the same drive as the other movies folder, but outside that folder...now let's consider a situation...i want to give access to my movies folder and music folder to my friend, normal one, not close enough...how do i do that??? make two users???second situation...i want to give access to all these folders to my buddy...how do i do that??? make three users??? :eek:now, i can't put all of them in one folder for sure!!! ;)

ok, i think the solution is...rather than making users by the persons name, i make users by the folders' names...like "music" for "music" folder, "movies" for movies folder, and so on...i think that's the only solution...and now i give these IDs to whomever i think can access that folder...thanks guys, i got the solution!!! :D
